The paired element of your sign is fire and in fact, you have the only fundamental connection with fire of all the zodiac signs. Your special connection with fire gives your personality the self-starting and initiating qualities of a spontaneous flame. Thanks to fire, you have the ability to be a natural leader and you often witness a burning passion within your being. As you embrace fire’s positive qualities your passion will burn with greater fortitude and you will continue on a path to success. However, you should be aware of the impatience and impulsiveness that is a common problem for fire signs.
